The suspect, identified as Ogunleye, 49, and his help, Muta, 27, were said to be arrested at Orile-Agege area of the state.
It was learned that the herbalist and his errand boy were arrested based on a confessional statement made by a robber.
According to the herbalist, “when policemen stormed my office, they ransack everywhere, after which they asked me if knew any lady called Bukola. I told them she is my cousin.
“I told them it was four months ago that I saw her last. I am not preparing charm for robbers as claimed by the Police. It is taboo for me to prepare charm for armed robbers.
“I believe I was arrested because they could not arrest my cousin, who is on the run. ”
However, a Police source said they had been on the trail of the herbalist and his cousin for long.
